You will likely notice your pet itching a lot if they have fleas. One way to check if your dog has fleas is to get a white piece of paper and rub your dogs with it. Put some water on the flakes and if they turn red, that is a sign of flea dirt. If your pet has ticks, you may see or feel them stuck on their fur. Your veterinarian can help you remove ticks to ensure nothing is left behind.
How can I prevent fleas and ticks on my dog?
A good way to prevent fleas and ticks is to use a veterinary prescribed product on a schedule that your veterinarian recommends.
What are the treatment options for dogs who have ticks?
Firstly, using a flea/tick medication as recommended will ensure the tick dies prior to transmitting a disease, such as Lyme disease. A veterinary technician can remove any ticks you find, and we can also send the tick away to be tested for diseases that it may have been carrying.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 15, 2020 some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call 705-789-7979. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
